Review of Capacitea Infuser Mug

As a lady who loves who loves a nice cup of tea there is nothing better than enjoying a cup of tea from a teapot. Sadly, I recently broke my beloved Bodum infuser teapot. I am now on the hunt to replace this. I decided to try an infuser mug as alternative as it is only me that uses a teapot. So when I was lucky enough to get the chance to review Capacitea infuser mug I couldn’t wait to give it a try



Onto the packaging. The mug is placed securely in bubble wrapping inside a strong cardboard box. On the box is as a picture of the mug and simple picture instructions on how to use it. I liked the simple design to this glass mug, you have the subtle brand logo underneath and deep blue handle. More importantly you can clearly see the colour of you tea inside. As I often say sometimes simple is best.


The mug itself is very light, inside you have the infuser element which you can either place tea leaves or a teabag. You simply add the freshly boiled at the appropriate temperature place the lid on and infuse the tea as required. You then simply remove the lid and infuser to add milk if required prior to drinking. You can replace the lid to help keep the tea warm if you know that you might get distracted like me.

Onto the tea taste. I initially tried the mug with tea leaves. I placed these inside the infuser and added this to the mug and added the lid. I removed these after the relevant brewing time. The first thing I checked was for any rogue tea leaves inside, which I can sometimes got into the tea when I have used other infuser mugs. There weren’t any so a big thumbs up there. The second test was the handle I was concerned that this may have been hot but it was not affected by the tea inside, perfect. What I also liked about the handle was that it felt light and delicate. The glass in which the mug was made from was also delicate just like the handle. It therefore made for an enjoyable drinking experience, not quiet the same as drinking out of a teacup but not far of this. The lid certainly helped the tea keep its heat. That said I tried the mug without this and the tea remained hot for around 5 minutes, not bad.


One element I do not enjoy when using an infuser is cleaning it. Even when you tip away those tea leaves some can get left behind even after a quick rinse. This was not the case with this infuser, the smaller holes in it’s design seemed to prevent this. Another problem I have when cleaning any teacups or mugs is that I have all my tea milk free frequently leaving a stain behind. The ease of removing this varies from each cup or mug. There was minimal staining which was quick and easy to remove with this mug. I also the mug in the dishwasher all elements cleaned perfectly, so that was a massive thumbs up from me.

So would I recommend this infuser mug? Definitely it is easy to use and clean, and keeps the tea hot even without the lid. This mug will now be taking residency at work in the hope that I will be drinking more teas which are hot not like warm.

    I love REAL tea made with loose leaves but the whole tea pot and strainer deal is a bit of a ball ache for me! Particularly as I’m the only tea drinker in the house! I am a little bit in love with the look of this infuser! And it looks smart too – not ugly like some other designs I’ve seen! I may have to invest in one for myself!

    I haven’t tried infused tea before – it seems an interesting way to do it though! I love the look and style of this Infuser Mug – it is pretty simple, but it does look so delicate as you’ve said. It looks like they’ve designed a really good one!

    I have only ever used tea in bags and have always been wary of trying the diffuser mugs and cups I have seen – mainly in case I end up with a mouthful of leaves! I love the stylish look of this one though and it def sounds like a decent one. Thanks for sharing 😃

    Oh wow this looks so sleek and fancy lol I feel like if I got this I’d belong on FoodNetwork. This seems so handy because I love tea, like authentic tea from leaves (don’t mind I use a teabag sometimes) I love when my gran makes it and this might be handy for her. Thanks for sharing doll! 😘

    Sounds like a great product! Unfortunately the fussy eater/drinker in me doesn’t like tea or coffee! No hot drinks for me unless it’s hot chocolate!

    This is such a good idea. I love a fresh brewed cup of tea and have a lot of varieties that I almost never use because I never want a full teapots worth. My husband doesn’t like tea much so I save it for guests, but with this I could just make a single cup for myself a lot easier. #MMBC

    Looks great! I always use loose leaf tea, either in a teapot or infuser mug. And I always insist on an all stainless steel infuser. So many of them have plastic parts, and I don’t like that. #TriumphantTales

      Hi, I try to have loose tea when I can. To be honest I go with whatever strainer keeps the leaves in and is easy to clean.

    This is cool. I like in cafes when I get loose tea! I don’t really drink it at home (well I drink a lot of Tetley lol) as I always thought it was a lot of hassle. However, this mug makes it seem a little easier! X

    This sounds perfect – trying to get stuck tea leaves out of an infuser so frustrating, so I’m glad to see that the design of this one negates that issues.
    Bonus that it looks so stylish too!

    I was given some loose leaf green tea which I have no way of drinking. I really need something like this – it looks perfect and means you don’t need to make a whole pot of tea if you just want one cup. Great review! Thanks for the inspiration 💖 xx

    My husband would love something like this, he’s a huge fan of loose leaf tea (I can’t stand the mess, bags are so much easier) and if it keeps your tea warmer for longer that’s an added bonus. What a great idea, thank you for the recommendation, one Valentines present sorted! X

    I have to admit that I bung the teabag in the mug and then pour in the water – not even a teapot for me! But this sounds great – ease of cleaning is such a big thing with something like this. We have numerous different coffee making contraptions, and it’s the ones that are easy to clean that get used the most. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  27. February 5, 2018 / 5:39 pm

    What a brilliant idea. I love a pot of tea but it often seems to much for just me. A mug infuser is the best of both worlds. #mmbc

    It looks and sounds really nice. I use a teapot for my tea, but it does feel like a waste when I’m the only one drinking. I also like the idea of a lid to keep my drink hot.
